Primetime game No. 2: Steelers vs Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars were one of the fastest-improving teams over the second half of the 2022 season. Now that Trevor Lawrence is making strides, this former bottom-dwelling team is actually quite fun to watch.

Lawrence and the Jaguars have enough exposition on offense to drop 30 or more points on any given team at any time, and their ability to catch fire instantly helped them to a remarkable second-half performance in the playoffs against the Chargers this past season.

The Steelers, meanwhile, have a defense with some new talent added in Patrick Peterson, Joey Porter Jr., and Keeanu Benton, as well as a fresh T.J. Watt (who spent half of the 2022 season on IR). This could be labeled as a matchup of offense versus defense.

At the same time, fans will tune in to see Kenny Pickett try to go toe-to-toe with Trevor Lawrence in primetime at Acrisure Stadium. There's going to be a sold-out house and fans won't miss this game for anything.
